Breakup Advice

September 24, 2009
By Anonymous

After those amazing relationships end, you have to ask yourself how things will continue. If you broke up with your partner, you must either be unhappy with them, mad at them, tired of them, or some other circumstance. So, if it is you who breaks up with the other, stop and think. As one single person, you don't have any idea what the other might go through. One moment to you is completely different that that of another. For example, you might go on a date and have the time of your life, oblivious to that fact that the one you care for is about to slit their wrists in boredom.
Just and example.
But that is something that you can relate to a breakup. You might think that things are better off without the other. They might be tripping and falling behind you, trying to catch up and get you back. It happens a lot, and these breakups are the worst. I myself went through one. And I've scraped my knees so much over these past to years tripping and falling after her(yes, two years. She's so beautiful I can't stop thinking about her). I've found out the the first and most important thing you can do to stay out of those horrible, bad break ups, is to forget. Easier said then done, right? Well, there is only one way to completely get over such a thing. Overwrite the memories that the two of you shared. Now, people call this a rebound, but isn't every boyfriend/girlfriend after the first a rebound? You must make better memories with this person. Have a greater time, and think about the new things you share rather then all the things you used to share with the other. Take it from me, with time, almost everything is mendable.

and that too i agree with. You are never alone. There is always someone out there who is going through what you are, or at least closest to it. You just have to find them.

ZiRaww!, yea, i know what you mean. I have dated many other girls since then but some have a better quality here or there but they've never really topped her as a person. it would be hard to find one to beat her. But you have to be willing to try :)

See... I've liked him for a while and I just found out that he used to like me. Uggh! He told his sister and she told me. The thing is, is that he never thought he had a chance. Now I'm not sure because he might still think that. I'll tell him though and let you know how it goes. Thanx!

Depends. I'd tell him that you might still have feelings for this past bf, but that you are soley focused on him and are trying your hardest to get over him. The truth is worth a lot and not telling him something that he should understand might have worse repercussions in the end.

We were best friends at first and we knew that we liked each other. But things have changed now because he broke up with me and i found out he was cheating on me anyway. The other guy I like doesn't know I like him. Should I tell him?

I only wish this was as easy as you make it seem. I am still head over heals for my ex who I haven't seen in eight months.... Dating other guys is not helping out my problem because they are not him...
